“I met Haitians and I felt the exhaustion of a population that has been facing a cascade of crises and unbearable living conditions for too long,” said Antonio Guterres, the secretary general of the United Nations.

The mission’s main schools are in Marbial (with 620 students) and Delmas (275 students). Both are operating at 50% capacity. School enrolment has declined as school attendance remains irregular due to insecurity. For the same reason, faculty and staff are reluctant to travel to school sites. Please pray for a safe school re-entry and the start of the school year. The government still has to set a start date.

Presently, the situation in Haiti is dire, with 5.2 million people requiring humanitarian assistance due to escalating sociopolitical instability and rampant gang violence. Please pray for Haiti.
